Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, all our events and shows in 2020 have been cancelled. Please continue to check this section for updates.
Let's hope things go back to normal soon and that I can start meeting customers in person soon. In the meantime, stay safe.

Design-Nation X Association of Cultural Enterprises

We’re sad to see trade events closing down right now, but everyone’s health must be the paramount interest. So it was not a surprise when our good friends and partners at the Association of Cultural Enterprises had to cancel their annual conference and trade show this week.

Of course the Design-Nation team are very disappointed to miss this special connection to the world of museum and gallery retail. But we’re not deterred and have come up with an alternative: we are delighted to be able to share all the content from this event online: our talented exhibitors and their beautiful work. We’re running a daily feature on our social media channels to profile these talented designer-makers, as we ask them, “What makes your work great for museum shops?”.

We can put you right in front of each maker’s work, in a virtual tour of the trade show. Click on the links below for our blog.


The Cultural Enterprises Trade Show offers curated products and retail insight to keep your buying on trend throughout the year.

Tailored to your interests, our show saves you time – no more hard work searching out the suppliers that are relevant to you amidst the hundreds that aren’t! And if you’re new to the sector, you can come along, see what’s out there and make the connections to get you started.
